An Anniversary to Remember


Barker College is a Pre-K to Year 12 co-educational Anglican School. 2020 is a momentous year for the School. This year marks its 130th anniversary and the year in which coeducation commenced in the Middle School. Barker College’s transition to full coeducation began in 2018 and by 2022 will be fully coed from Pre-K to Year 12.

Year 7 girls joined the growing number of girls from the Junior School and the thriving presence of the Senior School girls, to create a vibrant new spirit for a new time at Barker.

Construction of a new sports and learning precinct is nearing completion. The Rosewood Centre promises to become a place where movement and learning can be celebrated and community life in the school nourished. It is expected to open early Term 2.


Recently, Barker’s Junior School achieved authorisation as an IB World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP). The PYP offers a teaching and learning framework that enhances student engagement through a holistic approach to building students’ knowledge, conceptual understanding, skills and attitudes.

It is a new decade and a new time in the life of the school. Around us, there is a nation and a globe experiencing the distress of uncertainties. Yet the Barker community has found a cause for the thankfulness and joy amid the pain.
